I’m Better than Ms. Cleo…
One of my favorite sayings is “I’m better than Ms. Cleo.” I pull it out every now and then when I foresaw something that was BOUND to happen. I’m Jamaican, so I already think I have one up on Ms. Cleo, but still, my training in the “World of Shaman” isn’t complete yet. I say all this to tell a story.
I was sitting on my girl’s bed (I’m house and dog sitting), laptop in lap and the phone rings. It’s a number I don’t know and i didn’t want to answer, but it was possible that I was expecting a call today. I answer the phone and you know who it was? “O” (of “Pullin a Casper” fame). It took me a minute before I even realized who it was. Did I call it?
DID I CALL IT!?!?!?!
iSaid that one day he was gonna call me and act like everything is alright. iSaid that he was gonna start talking about how much we should be friends. iSaid that he was gonna go in on how we should talk to each other more. Several things went through my mind.
1. WTF you mean “we should talk more?! You’re the one that pulled a “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” when I tried to call you to fix my computer (which STILL has no sound, mind you). Now you wanna talk about how “life took us in different paths?” Does that even make sense?
2. How you gonna tell me to call you and I don’t even have THIS number? If his name had popped up when the call came in then I probably wouldn’t have answered it. Why? Because this dude is a CLOWN! I can tell you that I’ve probably had my computer back for over 2 months now, and he didn’t even mention that he was supposed to initially fix it. As momma Nikki would say, “im need two rahtid lick!” (Patois for the day, sound it out) Translation: “He needs to get punched.”
3. See, THIS is why we don’t answer the phone from numbers that we don’t know. I knew better and STILL! Now I know what you’re thinking. “If you’re better than Ms. Cleo then you should’ve known that it was “O” calling you. While this observation may be true, I didn’t say that my “better than Cleo-ness” was an exact science! So back up off me!
Has there ever been a time when you foresaw something coming a mile away? We’re all smart cookies, so it STILL amazes me when people assume that we’re stupid. Ms. Cleo was fake but I’m the real deal baby! What do we think “O” was thinking? Did he think I was just gonna forget how he left me high and dry when it came time to fix my computer? I’m not hard up for friends, so sorry bud… Ya gotta come better than that!!
TOLD YA he was gonna pop back up!!! He’s like the “whack a mole” FOR REAL!!!!
Peace and Love, Nick
